A pine wood plaque inspired by the Buddhist figure, the Green Tara.

This ornament forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

This plaque is made from pine wood in Nepal and each piece has been carefully crafted by skilled artisans in traditional Tibetan colours.

In different branches of Buddhism, Tara is worshipped varyingly as a Buddha, a Bodhisattva or a goddess, and is the embodiment of compassionate wisdom. Her name means ‘She who Carries Across’, and she is known for being astonishingly beautiful and serene. Tara often manifests in 21 forms, representing the range of her powers; each Tara manifestation is associated with protection from a different fear or ailment. The Green Tara is associated with dynamic action, and is typically portrayed sitting on a lotus with her right foot touching the ground, indicating her connection to the world of suffering.

A stunning gift for a lover of Buddhist art.
